The tachometer works (at low speed), the microswitches on the lid interlock switch on and off and the control electronics and front panel seem to work.

There is a connection diagram for the main board on page 2-11 (page 20 in the pdf linked above). The motor drive is powered directly from the mains, separately to the rest of the main board.

Connector J12 (supplying mains power to the motor drive) is badly damaged and I have removed it. This is a three way Panduit brand IDT connector. I think it is an ITW Pancon brand MAS-CON 3.96mm connector (eg. http://uk.farnell.com/itw-pancon/ce156f22-3-d/wire-board-conn-female-3pos-3-96mm/dp/1418234).
